Fire Weather Planning Forecast for South Central Texas
National Weather Service Austin/San Antonio TX
348 PM CDT Tue Mar 28 2017

.DISCUSSION...
An upper level storm system and Pacific cold front will bring a
good chance of rainfall to south central Texas tonight. Rain
chances will be on the decrease for areas east of I-35 Wednesday
afternoon while the remainder of the region remains dry. Depending
on how much rain occurs over the Rio Grande plains and southern
Edwards Plateau, will determine if we see elevated to critical
fire weather conditions over the mentioned areas. We expect
increasing westerly 20 foot winds and low humidities across these
areas tomorrow afternoon. Currently, it appears the main area of
concern will be across Val Verde county. We will also need to
monitor Kinney, Edwards and Real for elevated to near critical
fire weather conditions. Dry weather is in store for all areas
Thursday and Friday with a low chance for most areas expected
Saturday. Rain chances will increase significantly for all areas
Saturday night and Sunday as another upper level storm system
moves in from the west.
